thesongis@gmail.com. . . Marianne Szlyk's "The song is", elegant as "Issa's Untidy Hut"

    Marianne Szlyk's 'The song is'. . .  Don Wentworth's 'Issa's Untidy Hut' is among our finest online poetry sites, and! Marianne Szlyk's 'The song is':  as good (yes, I know, hard to believe, but true) with editor Szlyk's own special creative flourishes - plus, Marianne is asking us to contribute poetry and/or related creative endeavors!
    'The poem you submit may be unpublished or published.  Just be sure that you have the rights to it.  Let me know where it was published, and I will credit that journal or book.  Info -  
     The deadline for this contest is December 30.  I will publish the poems as I receive them.  Please send them to thesongis@gmail.com -- thank you!'

    The Gene Clark contest post includes 12 YouTube sites featuring his musical accomplishments, including with 'The Byrds', and, may also include your best about this artist and related music/musicians (past posts have included Thelonious Monk) - we must visit/(submit!) to grock this ingenious, distinguished combination of music/poetry/YouTube/artwork/et al.-

a bit more info. . .
    'The second contest honors musician and songwriter Gene Clark, born in November 1944. Clark had a varied career, starting off in folk (New Christy Minstrels), then helping to create folk-rock with the Byrds, veering into country and beyond. . .  More than twenty years after his death, his album No Other is receiving the acclaim it deserves.  This year Beach House, Iain Matthews, and other musicians have toured, performing the songs from that album.  And this fall some of you may be writing poems inspired by them...or other songs by Clark'. . .

ok, my damage is complete, but!  I will send some of my own to 'The Song is' for consideration - 

and all poems are eligible for Thelma's prize!
